To touch you twice
Break you in a good way like a
Wave birthing wave
different exotic fishes
Not fucking ridiculous here’s
A breath forced steady
Salt in your crevice
Here’s harmony doubled
Imagine a most calming practice
A bunny in the palm of your hand after
Wild bird of prey shift is over
When women are vampires no longer
And air is not enough to tell you so
